Sitting is the new smoking because it increases the risk of death and disease even if you get plenty of physical activity, much like smoking is bad for you even if you exercise. The solution is to simply stand when you work instead of sitting down or if standing for long periods is difficult you can opt for something in the middle – not quite sitting but not quite standing either. For this you need something like the Muvman sit-stand stool. It allows movement in all directions and engages the core muscles but not in a way that distracts you from work. It can also be quickly and easily adjusted to be used as a stool or as a standing aid.
